4 One night I was driving along a road when I noticed that there were no signposts. Suddenly, I realized that we were lost. There were no lights anywhere, so I stopped the camper van for the night. After a while, a boat arrived and pulled us back to the beach. A couple of hours later we were home, safe and sound! From then on, we decided to stay in a hotel for our holidays. I was sick and tired of going to the same place every year, so last year my family and I decided to travel around Brittany for two weeks in a camper van. The following day, I woke up and the camper was moving by itself. We were floating on the sea! I called for help immediately. Meanwhile, my wife was trying to stop water from coming into the camper van.
